next time you can also try for example google cache.

in the google search bar type
'cache:http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fsaa1655g/fsaa1655g/' to see
which files were there, and to view for example the PKGBUILD in cache
you type 'cache:http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fsaa1655g/fsaa1655g/PKGBUILD'
in the google search bar.
